Ice sculptors create Shrek at National Harbor
Artisan ice sculptors from Harbin, China, put the final touches on the attraction ICE! featuring DreamWorks Shrek the Halls at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. These sculptors are master carvers who spend a month here each year turning two million pounds of ice into colorful ice sculptures in an environment of nine degrees.
